Learning Skills and Information Organization. Counseling Center Reports. Volume 3, Number 10.
Whitehall, Richard P.; Redding, Juliette L.
The theoretical and practical structure of a learning skills program based on an organization model is described. The first section of the paper deals with the description and implication of the program. Ideographic questioning and examination of a group of students and their study habits led to the development of an information processing model comprised of five parts: (1) input; (2) short term memory; (3) organization and consolidation; (4) long term memory; and (5) recall. Numbers one, three, and five were the focus of attention. Teaching techniques which facilitate success in these areas are discussed. The second section of the paper deals with an overview of results obtained from students who participated in the program. Grade point average and the Minnesota Study Habits Blank (Raygor) were the determinants of results. A brief discussion of the anticipated results of continued investigation concludes the article.
